Seeks daily investment results that correspond to the inverse (opposite) of the daily performance of the S&P SmallCap 600 Index.
Inflation makes this pretty much a loser.
I like the SmallCap 600 in the long term and Short ETFs stink.
I believe the smallcap index is heading up over the short term.Seeks daily investment results that correspond to the inverse (opposite) of the daily performance of the S&P SmallCap 600 Index.

This account is used to test a leading economic indicator I created. I developed an indicator named "Bulls vs Bears." At this particular moment the Bears are carring a maximum of 12 points, while the Bulls remain shut out with zero. A 12 point negative differential results in me choosing the Small Cap short, an 8 point differential results in a mid cap short, a 4 point differential results in an large cap short, a tie results in an SP 500 hundred long, and it continues into positive territory from there. This is a fun experiment that will surely result in my grave stone reading "Under this rock, is a dead American Genius."
Small cap will feel the bite as lenders rein in loans. M3 annual contraction point to a renew downturn. Small caps will be the first crushed.
I wouldn't try this with *real* money!!
Stocks go up.
same reason im shorting everything else. tired of writing pitches. If you really must know why this mediocre investor is doing this, then look at some of my first picks for this 22nd day of june. I explain there.
Retail sales continue to decline, and so does manufacturing output. Unemployment is rising causing another (3rd!) wave of foreclosures, now of prime mortgages.
What goes up...
Testing a theory here with this account, shorting all short ProShares for starters.
Fading every pick made by Ultralong
Short SmallCap 600
shorting the shorts
S&P at resistance at 1395 will pull back. I'm calling a temporary top today in the S&P at 1395 (yes I know I'll look like an idiot if I'm wrong but that hasn't stopped me before) It's 2:13 PM we'll see.
Shorting the shorts...long term.
